Motorola Z8

It is not that Motorola is not releasing new phones lately, but the new products all look so similar. Motorola Z8 however, is not in that category. The form factor alone (its curvy!) is sufficient to arouse our curosity. Z8 is officially release back in February 2007 and it took almost 10 months to hit the Singapore shores.

Motorola Z8
  • 2.2" TFT LCD, 16 million colours
  • microSD slot
  • Symbian OS v9.2

  • 3.5G
  • Bluetooth (A2DP)
  • 2 Megapixels, flash, Secondary Camera (VGA)


First off, Z8 is a very eye-catching phone for its shape and colours. Second, the idea of shape is to create more comfort when you hold the phone for calls. Nice ideas here.

Motorola's own user interface has come under lots of criticism but for Z8, its Symbian instead. Good. And Symbian allows third party applications. However note that the buttons might not be to your liking as it could be kind of unresponsive.

Average features sums up Motorola Z8 here. 2 Megapixels without autofocus and no Wi-Fi. Overall, its another "style over substance" type of phone.

I like this Z8 for its looks and this is a innovative one by Motorola. But I really believe Motorola could have make Z8 a great splash by including better features like Wi-Fi or a better camera. Because as much as Z8 can capture our attention, we are all disappointed as soon as we discover what exactly is in store for us.

Motorola Z8 is going for S$318 for a two year Singtel contract.
